Hi, I am 40 year old female and living in arkansas, us. I am hoping to find a solution for my problem. I am having tremor on my left hand which started very slightly a year ago. It increased very gradually and people started noticing nowadays. Not only tremor, but lack of strength and slow response on my left hand. Simple household activities are getting slow and hard. Also have a small bunion and hammer toe on my left leg. I don't wear heels or pointed shoes. Nothing wrong on my right side yet. I had a brain mri, neck mri and ncv testing so far as per doctor's suggestion. All of them looks normal. Doctors saying it may be parkinson after many years and he can give me medication right now for my tremor if its bothering me. This is my situation right now. I am working full time and the tremor is uncomfortable to deal with. The hammer toe bothers me as well as the toes are bent. Would you be please able to help me? or refer to someone who can? I am looking forward for your reply. Thanks.
Hi my 8 year old daughter is having severe deafness suddenly in left ear. Consulted 2 docs and are of the view that it can' t be reversed as nerves got damaged due to unknown reasons. We checked her up 3 yrs back, all was well then. Kindly suggest a way out for the treatment. Docs say there is no way out neither need to take any medicine.
Parkinson’s disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with parkinson’s. There is no cure for parkinson’s, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.
The 4 most common signs of parkinson’s are:
• tremors or shaking when at rest
• muscle stiffness
• slowed movement or problems starting movement
• problems with balance and movement
As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.
When you start to show signs of this disease, your doctor may order anti parkinsonian medicines or may also suggest some physical therapy to help manage your signs. The physical therapist can help you learn exercises, prescribed by a physiatrist, that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your doctor to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat parkinson’s disease, but they can be managed well.
You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.
Things you can do to manage your signs
• walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart. Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.
• use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.
• if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to
Side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.
• place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.
• stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or
When using the bathroom
• install grab bars on the walls, beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.
• use a shower chair inside the shower.
• install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.
• shave with an electric razor.
• wear loafers or shoes with velcro.
• wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.
When eating or drinking
• use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.
• use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.
Work closely with your health care team to manage your signs of parkinson’s disease.

Your hearing is one of the most important function your body carries out and sometimes you realize that you are losing your sense of hearing, when it is too late to get it back. There are two main reasons for this. One of the reason is age and the other is when the inner ear's hair cells break down and do not pick up sound well.
Here are 7 ways to safeguard your hearing:
- Try to avoid loud places: It is not advisable to go to places where you have to shout to be heard, such as in a street, a concert or a construction site.
- Buy low noise rating equipment: The equipments in your house will make sound that you hear the most. Try to avoid these equipments by buying appliances with a low noise rating.
- Wear hearing protection at loud places: However, it is true that it is not always possible to avoid loud noises. This is when you need to get hearing protection. Earplugs and earmuffs are two of the best ways to make sure that even when you are in a loud place, your hearing does not get affected. Earplugs and earmuffs generally reduce sound by 15 to 30 decibels, which may be crucial to make sure that later in your life, you do not lose your hearing.
- Avoid smoke: Smoking raises your chance of hearing loss. Second hand smoke does the same thing. Therefore, try to avoid, both smoking and secondhand smoking.
- Remove earwax properly: Earwax cannot be removed properly using a cotton swab. Instead, you should use an irrigation kit. Remember this as otherwise; the earwax could muffle your hearing.
- Avoid medications which reduce hearing: Certain medications increase hearing loss. Therefore, double check with your doctor to make sure your medicines will not make you lose your hearing.
- Get your hearing tested: Finally, get your hearing tested as identifying the problem early on can help stop worsen the situation.
